First, I want to convey our deepest apologies for the mixup at May’s meeting. Scott, our President, thought he had the library booked through May. Unfortunately, this was not the case. For those of you who made the trek to the alternate site, thank you for your good naturedness about it. For thouse who didn’t make it, please consider coming to our June meeting. We will have a picnic for this meeting, so details will follow.
On to what happened at the meeting! Greg and Scott talked about the Springbrook meeting they attended at the end of April. Greg created a wonderful photo essay of their trip.
Scott purchased 4 $25 gift certificates from Wolfe’s before he left to take to Springbrook and raffle off. Wolfe’s generously matched our purchase, so we had 8 $25 gift certificates to raffle off. We also talked about the upcoming N4C Convention and went over the schedule. We are planning to do a dry run of the tours in July or August to make sure they will run smoothly in September. August 8th is the deadline for Convention reservations.
We discussed possible photo themes and programs for next year from the photos everyone sent in. A list of themes was generated and will be presented at June’s meeting.
We had two winners in April’s N4C contest! Greg Hoglund took 3rd place in the Digital Photojournalism for his photo, “Mable takes Flight,” and John Sanders received an Honorable Mention in Digital Nature for his photo, “Owl.” Congratulations to Greg and John!
Our last scheduled meeting for the 2010–2011 year is June. For any new people, our year runs from September to May. We have a picnic in June, and take the summer off to travel and take more photos for next year. This year though, we are hosting the Annual N4C Convention September 9–11, so we will possibly have regular meetings throughout the summer. We have a lot to do and September will be here before we know it! If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail Scott or anyone on the e-mail list.
